Tiene delito (Netherlands: Labor Party should not meddle in religion):
When, as a Moroccan-Dutch, you put a glass of cold beer to your lips, it happens now that an ethnic Dutch confronts you: Hey, you’re Muslim, no? You can’t drink alcohol? Or you stand in the supermarket to pay for your chicken and the cashier says seriously: that’s not halal. In the Netherlands of 2009 you’re Islamisized by the non-Muslims, says Mohammed Mohandis. And that, he says, also happens in his own party – the PvdA.
Fouad el Haji
‘I once told Wouter Bos,’ PvdA councillor Fouad el Haji recalls, «that I think it’s a pity that secularism is not a political subject. Nobody stands up and says: We must link the group of secular Muslims to us. I told him: I notice that people leave because they don’t feel represented. You don’t only lose votes with that, but also potential members. Highly educated, rich in ideas, engaged, involved youth,»
Mostapha el Madkouri
Mostapha el Madkouri (38) says that as a politican or official, you shouldn’t get that into your head. The councilor from Almere is speaking of the municipal service-counter that Utrecht opened in a mosque earlier this year. That was decided by a PvdA official. That is undesirable. You should not put in civil servants there, do that in the municipality buildings. No ethnic-Dutch likes it, and rightly so. It’s a public service where he doesn’t feel welcome. While it should be accessible by everybody.
Dentro de poco lo veremos en el muy laicista PSOE ¿apostamos?
